Finalist Hailo present a revolutionary approach

Hailo has been announced as a finalist for the “Most Exciting Start-Up” category at the AutoSens Awards. They sit alongside Arbe Robitics, Metamoto, May Mobility, AEye and Ouster – all hoping to be crowned the winner at the Awards ceremony on 19 September 2018 in Brussels. The Most Exciting Start-up award recognises the panel’s view of the most complete package, the genuine intent to create a business, change the world and be known as a force for change in a single small company of motivated, passionate people. A big idea, a dynamic proposition, a brave business model or a firebrand leader.

“We are thrilled to be announced as finalists for the “Most Exciting Start-Up” category of the respected AutoSens Awards.” comments Hadar Zeitlin, Co-Founder and Chief Business Development at Hailo. “We view this as reinforcement to the importance of an efficient deep learning processing infrastructure to the industry.”

Hailo presents a revolutionary approach to deep learning processing infrastructure for embedded devices, which they believe will unleash unprecedented performance.

“Hailo’s belief is that their technology can create a true disruption in the industry, which matches the essence of this category – to highlight impactful innovation within the automotive sector. This is a time of high innovation in the deep learning space. Hailo’s approach stands out in vehicle perception technology and edge processing which could present a significant advantage,” commented Robert Stead, Chairman of the AutoSens Awards.

Hailo is developing a breakthrough microprocessor based on a disruptive proprietary technology for deep learning applications, that will deliver data center performance to edge devices. Hailo’s processor is designed to fit into embedded devices enabling them to process high-throughput streams in real-time using state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms while operating at reduced power consumption, size and cost.

Specifically for ADAS and autonomous vehicles (AV), Hailo’s re-think of computer processing breaks the barriers of traditional computing architecture, enabling local computation of deep-learning neural networks in them. The technology brings data-center performance to small, low-power processors of 3 types: sensor-attached processor for local processing of high-resolution inputs; sensor-hub processor that handles data fusion from multiple sensors, and a co-processor that handles the deep-learning workload of an ECU.

Hailo is currently working with leading partners in the automotive industry to build the next generation of smart sensors and powerful computing platforms that will enable in-situ deep learning, accelerating the development of ADAS and fully self-driving vehicles.

Zeitlin comments, “We believe in the potential of deep learning to benefit the world. Deep learning applications are changing the world around us, and we took it as our mission to bring its capabilities to common use for a better and safer environment.  A new type of computer, able of bringing intelligence to any product around us is needed to enable this vision, and this is exactly what we’re creating.” To revolutionize deep learning, Hailo takes a unique, multidisciplinary approach “Our team is carefully selected from a variety of disciplines and are integrated to overcome traditional disciplinary boundaries” says CEO and Co-Founder Orr Danon.​ “Hailo’s multi-disciplinary team is made up of industry experts united in their belief in delivering a complete offering. An important part of this, is co-designing the software and hardware. We believe that only by looking at the problem as a whole and by solving it end-to-end we can create a processor which is ideal for deployment of deep learning algorithms.”

“As a start-up, receiving recognition in your idea and work is pure motivation to us. We believe we should win this award because our vision is worth sharing with the world-  it’s time to unleash the potential of AI, and deep learning in particular.” concludes Zeitlin.

Congratulations again to Hailo, and good luck! Join the celebrations at the AutoSens Awards and see who will be crowned the winner of the “Most Exciting Start-Up” category on 19 September at the Atomium, Brussels. Book tickets here >>
